If you planning to do a road trip and you horrible with directions. You need considering buying a Good GPS system for your car.

If you only need it short term a way, you have a number of options.

Do you have a friend you could borrow one from. Consider renting a car and getting the satellite thing with it.

You may using cell phone. Many cell phones are satellite friendly. Most directions sites (for example - mapquest site) have an application you can download to your phone, and then "send" your phone the directions from mapquest.

But, consider this: buy good newest GPS The Best GPS System For Your Car system for your car. You may buy something with touch screen, speech capabilities, traffic information, MP3 and bluetooth capability, etc.

To have a functional GPS Tracking System the GPS device must also be able to communicate with a tracking service information about its' location. Therefore the GPS device must be both a Receiver and a Transmitter.

No handheld GPS devise is really great for a CAR!!

I have read a few reviews for some GPS systems and Garmin are the best navigational systems in my opinion. You may pay a little more for Garmin over Magellan and Tomtom but it is worth is faster route calculations, finds the satellites faster, doesn't crash as much, etc... Also the user interface of Garmin is very good.

Not long ago, I just bought a TomTom GPS, but I used a Garmin GPS when I rented car last year. I love the Garmin. I think I will return my TomTom and get a Garmin GPS. I used my Garmin in my home town. It told me to turn left on a 1 way street that went to the right, it tried to kill me. The other thing about the Garmin I like is when you miss a turn it will automatically re-calculate the route, the Tom Tom GPS requires to press some button and go through some prompts to re-calculate.

Now I look from the Dec 2008 Consumer Reports (Best Electronics 2008):

Best for most drivers:
Garmin Nuvi 760 (Nuvi 750, Nuvi 770, Nuvi 780)
Garmin Nuvi 255W
Garmin Nuvi 255

Best on a budget:
Garmin Nuvi 200W (Nuvi 250W)
TomTom One 130
Garmin Nuvi 200 (Nuvi 250, Nuvi 270)

Best for voice recognition:
Garmin Nuvi 880 (Nuvi 850, Nuvi 860)

Best for traffic information:
Dash Express

This is a true: Garmin makes a pretty darn good GPS all around! Garmin and TomTom are world leaders in GPS system, and they both offer a tremendous value and quality for what they have to offer. Garmin is the best in the U.S. and TomTom is better in Europe/UK. I live in the U.S. so Garmin better for me!
